On Jan. 17, more than 47,000 people marched on South Carolina's Statehouse to protest the flying of the Confederate flag over the capitol dome. What do you think about the presence of what many consider an emblem of slavery?
  • "As a Southerner, I simply want to display the Confederate flag as an important symbol of my heritage and history. My hatred of niggers has nothing to do with it."

    Jesse Lee Willis
    Auto Mechanic
  • "Hasn't South Carolina learned anything since the days of the Civil War? On second thought, I think I'd rather not know the answer to that question."

  • "It is unconscionable that, in this day and age, that ugly symbol of racism is painted on the roof of the General Lee. Sheriff Roscoe should teach them Duke boys a lesson."

    Delivery Driver
  • "I'm from the South, my daddy's from the South, and my daddy's daddy's from the South. All three of us are from the South."

    Banker
  • "If I were a citizen of South Carolina, I'd be deeply ashamed. Now, what's this about a flag?"
